Black-backed Jackals

A Jackal sings
with a scream and three yaps,
and if you heard it, you'd ask him
to close his trap.

Jackals are efficient hunters of small animals.  They also scavenge the food
from other predators.

     Have you ever tried to learn to sing?  What is your favorite song?  Can you write a poem today about singing or playing a musical instrument?  Have fun with this poem.  Good luck writing.

  2. Joy,
    If I use the jackal cry when I'm stressed out will I stress out others too? ;)

    1. You betcha babe. Nothing like a screamin' banshee to send one over the edge. Don't let that Christmas shopping get to you.
